Ten-second takeaway

Be it pearls on jhumkis or the Colosseum with crystals, bookmark Mayuri Jewels for upcoming shopping expeditions for festival dressing.

Hand-crafted, anti-allergy, jewellery from Mayuri Jewels is perfect for ethnic and contemporary accessories. Beady eyed Jyothi Radhakrishnan is a senior technical manager but thank goodness for us, she moonlights as a jewellery designer, and a fine one at that! Apart from her designs, under the name Mayuri Jewels, which range from chunky tribal and Meenakari to delicate florals and shell art, what we love most is that she uses non-allergic ear wires that are completely lead, cadmium and nickel-free, usually with pewter and silver dominating. Her use of beads also stands out, and we don’t only mean in terms of how she sets them. They’re sourced from America, UK, Nepal and Far East mostly, and hand-picked by Radhakrishnan herself. So don’t expect to get the same designs twice over, as she believes firmly in not repeating. That, or she doesn’t want her customers bumping into each other at a party wearing the same thing!

Festival ready

You can expect the designs to be inspired by movies, music, art and even a tribute to the Wonders of The World! Christ The Redeemer {Rio de Janeiro, Brazil} anyone? If you really like a design you’ve seen, or you prefer Radhakrishnan bringing out her sketch book you create a piece for you, she’s happy to oblige. And you’ll need to pay us for letting you in on this secret, but if you send her a photo of your outfit, be it a sari or dress, she’ll model any piece of jewellery you fancy to suit the exact pattern. How about that for style and exclusivity, ladies?

On offer

Jhumkis and chandelier ear pieces are fast-selling products for this designer, as are her nose-pins which double up as clip-ons. Do check out her Raaga range which is musical notes with a simple ruby or emerald adding a hint of colour. Jade, Rudraksh and Corals too feature in her work, so there’s certainly something for every girl there, whether you’re the desi dresser or the Western wearer.
